The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

Early Bird Registration Opens Soon!
In 2020, SNAG will hold it’s 49th annual conference in the City of Brotherly Love!
 
Join us for the 2020 SNAG Conference in Philadelphia! The City of Brotherly Love is a supportive hub made up of creatives and entrepreneurs inhabiting studio buildings throughout the City – the streets are small, but they pack in deep.
 
The theme of SNAG’s 2020 conference symbolizes its host city of Philadelphia and the fields of metalsmithing and jewelry, both of which are constantly evolving with the times; constantly reinventing themselves.
 
From Grit to Gold: Future Fifty represents the breadth of us coming together after a huge historical evolution (that was not always pretty) and building the future together.
Early Bird Registration opens January 23rd!
